Turkey’s main opposition party has revealed it wants to create a USD 200 billion “mega city” in Anatolia, Anadolu agency reports. The cost of the project will involve a 20 percent public investment and 80 percent private investment.
The new project would be implemented in 2020 and completed by 2035. The new city would be “the project of the century” and become an economic and energy hub between East and West, Republican People’s Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu said.
The ambitious plan would compete with three other major world projects – the Initiative for the Integration of the Regional Infrastructure of South America, the Kunming–Singapore Railway Project and China’s Maritime Silk Road Project.
